Every year around this time I like to assess how the year has gone, and decide how I can make next year even better.
Safe Dreams has grown from having only one product to having 14 different product lines. Until now the ‘team’ has consisted of myself, Vicki, my fab assistant who has been with me from the beginning, and a great bunch of reliable contractors. However, it is now time to expand the business and take on an almost full time member of staff – how exciting!!
Its not the best time of year to be recruiting but if you know of anyone suitable, please forward on this job advertisement below:
